  • Administraor password expiration

    I am prepping for an audit, and have been running some scans using mbsa and newt. I am told a few things that I do not know how to fix.
    A. there is more than 2 admins on the net. Is enterrise admin necessary?
    B. That my administrator password is not set to expire. But I am not allowed to change the expiration for the password on the administrator account.

    Is there a way around these items, or do i tell the auditor, "bummer"?

    never mind, got it.
    the option to uncheck password never expires was not available in 2k (grayed out), but was available in my 2003 server. So apparently, all changes should be made there.
